REAP is a registered member of the Rwanda Education NGOs Coordination Platform (RENCP), a national platform that brings together more that 100 educational nonprofits. As an active member of the RENCP, REAP hosted the coalition’s members, a couple of months ago. The organizations were impressed by REAP’s literacy and community development programs. To convey their support, Save the Children selected REAP out of all the organizations in Rwamagana and donated 500 Kinyarwanda (native language) storybooks to our children. In addition to the books, REAP and Save the Children will collaborate to promote the culture of reading in the Musha Community through the Mureke Dusome Project (Let’s Read Project) which aims to form, equip, train and facilitate reading clubs in the community.
